Cpl. Aiden Bemis,(right) a digital manufacturing engineer with 1st Supply Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, I Marine Expeditionary Force, and Staff Sgt. Kyle Owens, (left) a motor transportation chief with Combat Logistics Battalion 5, 1st MLG, demonstrate the old method of removing a steering wheel from the column using a 10-way slide hammer kit at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, April 29, 2021. The slide hammer kit often cracks steering wheel columns and warps the steering wheel. Bemis provided the capability to mass produce Owen’s steering wheel remover tool that prevents damage to the steering wheel column during removal. Owens originally designed the tool in 2012, after cracking multiple steering wheel columns. He came up with the idea to drill three holes into a standard washer and weld a nut so that he could effectively remove a steering wheel from the Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVR) and Logistics Vehicle System Replacements (LVSR).
